There are three other Republicans running against him but they’re not getting much attention or support and some state GOPs won’t even let them have a primary.
@thegirlfromthething Maybe. I don't know why candidates are afraid to start against the sitting president of the same party.It's just sort of tradition that members of the sitting president's party never run against him.I think it's stupid, they should.Maybe I still want a Republican, but not Trump.What kind of democracy is this, eh?
They don’t want to cause intra-party conflict and potentially split the vote, like what happened in Mississippi last year.
@thegirlfromthething There's already intraparty conflictWhat happened in Mississippi?
A primary opponent who poses an actual threat would make it even worse. There was a runoff after the midterms when two Republicans ran against the Democrat and there was no decisive victory for either of them. A Republican ended up holding the Senate seat anyway but it was embarrassing for them that they couldn’t win a regular statewide election in a solid red state because the Republican majority was split.
